It has been a wild journey for JoshLia and all their fans. The last time they had a chat with the King of Talk on Tonight with Boy Abunda, it was only the debut week of Ngayon at Kailanman. Now, the primetime series is coming to an end and the tandem is back to talk about the success that they received since. They also addressed some issues about bras, houses and everything in between!
Over the holidays, Julia Barretto welcomed the new year in the U.S. “I needed it so bad,” she admitted. It was a much-needed trip for her soul and her favorite part about the break was waking up to their complete family. Last year, Joshua Garcia joined her family on their vacation to Japan. So, this time around they decided to be with their own families. He hoped that this would make up for missing their last family reunion in Batangas.
Julia considers this as “healthy time apart”. Because they work together and are in a relationship, they are constantly around each other. Sometimes, although unintentionally, one of them would end up taking out their stress on the other person. Which is why she feels, “It’s important to also miss each other.” This helps them remember why they love each other, “Why you really want that person to be with you every day.”
Now that the couple is back to reality, first on their agenda this year is reaching the conclusion of Ngayon at Kailanman. “Sana po magustuhan n’yo ang huling mga gabi namin,” Julia wished. They are beyond thankful for every Kapamilya who tuned in to every episode. “Sana mabigyan din namin kayo ng magandang ending,” Joshua hoped.
This journey has both taught them a lot about themselves and on how to better their craft. Joshua learned to separate the personal from his on-screen character. He knows that he can be sensitive. So, when it comes to dramatic scenes, he would instead focus on his character. On the other hand, Julia still draws from personal experiences. But she stressed that there needs to be a balance. The reel and real can have parallels and finding this can make her more sensitive.
We will definitely miss Eva and Inno, but we are also excited to see what is next for JoshLia. This is the tandem’s first ever teleserye together and their performance is enough to say that great opportunities will come their way.
If you are starting to feel the separation anxiety, then this uncut interview just might save you. Julia’s fashion choice has certainly been a trending topic since this episode aired with many praising her for being body positive. Meanwhile, Joshua is ready to explain why he loves playing games on his computer so much.
